I’ve used all the different colors of Magura pads, and clear plasmatic pads. In good conditions I’ve really not noticed a huge difference; perhaps the plasmatic pads did provide a bit more braking force (= less tiring for your fingers). The difference in wear didn’t seem to be too important; they all seem to last well although the black Magura pads probably should last the longest. I never found that the sticky pads caused much problem with locking up and they all squeak under some conditions.
So if you want to try them, plasmatic pads might help your fingers. If you don’t have a Spooner, getting that will help the most.
